For the Labor Day weekend Ron, Angel and I went up the South East corner of Beacon Rock. I thought we'd fly up it as I now know the route, but it actually took us like 8 hours. Good thing we brought a lot of water and grub this time. At top a few hikers thought we were kickass as we had come up the 'face'. We lucked out with weather as it wasn't too hot and had a nice breeze.
